Founded in 2011, the Religion in Society Research Network explores the relationship between religion in society and the changing nature of spirituality. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

The Eleventh International Conference on Religion & Spirituality in Society calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:

2021 Special Focus—Modeling Traditions from the Margins: Non-Canonical Writings in Religious Systems

THEME 1: RELIGIOUS FOUNDATIONS

THEME 2: RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY AND SOCIALIZATION

THEME 3: RELIGIOUS COMMONALITIES AND DIFFERENCES

THEME 4: THE POLITICS OF RELIGION

To support the range of options, and flexibility needed in our current climate, we will offer a blended conference experience. You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change. The choice to participate virtually could also be a moral decision – for the planet, for security, or when the financial burden of travel is too great. We aim to foster spaces that align with principles of social justice and community development.


We also want to be ready for the possibility of place-based postponement due to COVID-19. If we are forced to postpone, the online engagement will still go ahead, and your registration will allow you to join the conference in person in a later year.


This way we build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.
